this is on el camino real near the lawrence expressway. we want to check in with janine who is on the scene. it looks like they have a little bit of a handle on it. >> yes, i just spoke with the captain here on scene, he told me they are starting to get a handle on this fire, so it has not spread on any other buildings. he was feeling more positive in the last few minutes. you can see not as much fire is standing out there. even in a matter of 15 minutes the last time i hit the air, before you can see the signs on the strip mall, now they are gone. this fire started at 3:00 this morning, firefighters arrived on scene and this quickly grew, it seemed the fire was trapped
behind what's called the mansur, where the signs were, it was acting as a fire tunnel. originally the firefighters were inside the building, but it got too dangerous, now they are attacking it from the outside. they have a ladder up, spraying water on one side of the building, it's an l shaped building. on the other side they have an engine, it seems firefighters are keeping a distance away from this. it looks like different parts of roof has collapsed. you can sigh the smoke from the freeway when we were on our way here. try to avoid this area of el camino east of lawrence expressway. they have both directions of el
camino closed down. the crossroads would be el camino between pomeroy and lawrence expressway. they don't believe anyone was in the building. this fire happened when there was no businesses that were open. of course we don't have confirmation of that. this is an area where there's lots of strip malls and mom and pop shops. no residential homes are close by. they are continuing to put water on this and hoping to have it under control. a much better situation than 15 minutes ago. >> when you say mansur, is that the name of the indian restaurant. i was trying to look up the strip mall. >> you know, i'm looking, there's a restaurant called
juju bean. mansur is what the fire captain called, i guess you call it the facade, on a strip mall where people place their signs to say this is the name of this business. where you put the sign, apparently is called a mansur, that was trapping the fire. zooming into the businesses across the street. for people who know the area get a better picture. >> that is part of the building, the building is an l shape. they are trying to save the part of the building where you see no fire. it's behind the aerial ladder. part of the l they have been able to save, the other part is destroyed.
>> okay. that's hard to see. >> good news they were able to save the rest of the area. thank you for the update. >> this is el camino real, we want to check in with sal on the traffic in that area. it's going to be effected. at least it's early still. and earlier they were letting some traffic through on the opposite side of the street, they are not doing it now. it is shut down in both directions near the fire. traffic won't get through, you have to go on the side streets if you use el camino real. the lawrence expressway is getting through in both directions. please give yourself time in this area at lawrence expressway. i'm sorry el camino real
near the lawrence expressway. let's look at the traffic elsewhere, we'll look at san mateo bridge westbound 92 heading to the highrise. no major problem here traffic continues time to look good. >> now let's go to steve for the forecast. >> well maybe. >> i'm here. just keep talking, thank you sal. we have low clouds and temperature on the cool side, stuck in the 50s, there's a big fog bank, this is one guy speaking here who's been doing this for a long time. you can get an idea on the fog bank, it is more in charge this year so far. we'll see if that holds, water temps that's the pattern we're
in. there's a westerly breeze in place even with the low clouds. west at sfo. 52 to 57, 58, it's not going to change that much, because everybody says cloudy. you can see 50s for others, mill valley 54, napa 54, the low cloud deck is preventing us from cooling off more. the low responsible for yesterday's weather taking the turn more toward southern california, that should take more of that out of the area. sunny, breezy after the low clouds. a few showers could pop-up more toward the east and the south than here. 60s and mainly low 70s. i believe i'm going back to pam and brian. >> yes you are. we have other stories, the woman and child killed in a
trash on train tracks have been identified. relatives say the driver of the suv hit by the train was 30- year-old vanessa henriquez and her 3-year-old daughter sady. the suv was hit at 1:30 yesterday afternoon. the rav4 was pushed down the tracks a quarter of a mile. relatives say she was devoted to her family. >> she was a loving mother. very responsible. she loved to be with her family. >> pg&e is looking into reports that traffic was heavy in that area because of work by its crews. they are asking who has video of the accident to contact them. san francisco police are treating the discovery of a
man's body at a lake as a suspicious death. a gardner found the body yesterday morning. authorities drained the small lake to search for evidence. the area is a popular spot. >> it was a surprise a body find, it's creepy. >> sources tell us that the victim was involved in a brawl on monday and was assaulted by three men. the three suspects accused of killing a millbrae father will remain in jail until they appear in court next week. they are accused of killing keith green. lee and green have two young daughters. he was last seen alive at the pancake house. his body was found 12 days

the investigation. but a councilman was able to view the footage. >> i saw the video and saw the three people ram it and get out and come inside. it was a brief video, but it was impressive in a negative way. >> at this point authorities only have a vague description of the car. lawmakers are considering legislation to protect people who smash windows who save animals in hot cars. they showed support for the right to rescue bill. it was 90 degrees outside and the temperature was 108 degrees in the 21 minute experiment. it would allow good samaritans to smash windows to save pets but there's restrictions. >> this is not a license to break windows, it's an
